A Day of Mindfulness: Cultivating Compassionate Presence: A Gift for All Seasons with Beth Mulligan

Saturday, December 8, 9:30am to 3:30pm

In these busy times it is easy to lose sight of what is most meaningful in our lives sometimes taking for granted so much of this precious life. The practice of Mindfulness Meditation, mindful Yoga, mindful walking and mindful eating, in a mostly silent day long format, with the support of community and experienced teachers, allows us to cultivate our true and natural compassionate presence. Join Beth Mulligan for this day of practice and cultivate your compassionate presence.

Open to all levels of meditation—beginners to experienced practitioners. Please bring your lunch and all of who you are into our experience together.


Beth Mulligan has completed all steps of the professional Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher training program through the University of Massachusetts under Jon Kabat-Zinn PhD and his colleagues and is a certified MBSR teacher. She teaches Mindfulness at many major medical centers, Universities, schools, non-profit organizations and corporations. She also trains professionals in mindfulness based interventions and participates in research on the benefits of mindfulness.
